In the Kitchen…

Do you use Houzz? I know you designers use it, but it’s a nice source to save design projects for your own house, and you can shop right from the app. Like Pinterest for HGTV junkies.

I created an ideabook where I save images to use if we ever get around to remodeling our bathroom. I have a few licensed products  there as well, like this kitchen poster.

Here are the basic ingredients, but since I’m not a food blogger, check out the dressing and the full recipe for Ina Garten’s  Cape Cod Chopped Salad from Barefoot Contessa Back to Basics, one of the many cookbooks I own and one of the few I actually use.

Cape Code Chopped Salad

8 ounces thick-cut bacon

8 ounces baby arugula

1 large Granny Smith apple, peeled and diced

½ cup toasted walnut halves, coarsely chopped

½ cup dried cranberries

6 ounces blue cheese, such as Roquefort, crumbled

I know you are probably wondering why I’m sharing recipes, but I get kinda tired of talking about myself, so I thought I’d share more of what I find interesting. Hope it’s not too far off topic…Is it? Comments welcome.
